The Dance of Death**** (Donmar at Trafalgar Studios, 4 Jan 2013)

Posted: January 5, 2013 in Theatre

Far from the bleak Scandinavian drama that the title suggests, Conor McPherson’s translation of August Strindberg’s play is richly textured and darkly comic. Kevin R McNally and Indira Varna play a warring couple whose marriage is nearing either its 25th anniversary or its end and Daniel Lapaine plays a figure from their past who is drawn into the battlefield. The tiny space of this studio theatre is absolutely ideal for this intimate human drama which is performed to perfection and absorbs the audience totally. This is an evening of all-round excellence.
